Does Homeward Legal look after the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Leyburn?
Yes - We are able to work with buyers and sellers at auction. Quite often unusually constructed houses e. g. quick sale properties, are bought at auction which tend to require increased investigation before committing. Conveyancers therefore advise that bidders instruct a qualified lawyer well in advance of the day of the auction for a detailed investigation of the sellers legal pack. After the auction day arrives your Homeward Legal lawyer is absolutely prepared for briskly concluding the transaction in the limited time as typically required .

Do you advise that I get a chancel search? I am buying a Leyburn flat on the same road as a glebe.
In Leyburn, some owners can be required to fund maintenance of a local church. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Church of England properties in Leyburn include St Matthew, Middleham St Mary & St Alkelda, St Matthew and Carlton Mission Room.
Can I agree a sale price without involving an estate agent or solicitor?
This depends on whether you have signed up with an estate agent and what agreement is already in place. While it might seem unfair if you’ve found a buyer outside of the estate agency process and you’re expected to still pay the agent their fees on sale, you should be very careful about stepping outside the agreed terms and conditions since this is legally binding and you may face penalties as a result. Therefore, if you want to follow this course, it’s worth checking the details with a solicitor to ensure you’re following the letter of the law.
If you’re not with an agent, you can publicise your house details with a number of publications and online sites (some are free, others require a fee), but you’ll need to do all the legwork and administration. For a legal standpoint, you don’t need to appoint a solicitor to perform the conveyancing, but it would be an unwise option to pursue as you will probably have neither the training or experience in some its complexities, and you won’t have the protective indemnity insurance in the event of a problem arising with your work.
